The Premier League currently has some great Brazilian stars showcasing their talents.
Here's a look at some of the best Samba Stars from England's top league:
David Luiz - Chelsea
The 26-year-old Brazilian posses both power and technique. Luiz can pick a pass out anywhere on the pitch smashing thunderous long balls forward as accurate as could be.
He is able to defend while also attack dangerously at the same time. Whether he is played in the back-line or in the middle of the pitch, Luiz is always a dangerous player for the Blues.
For me, without a doubt, he is one of the biggest current Brazilian stars in the Premier League, and in the World having been targeted by Barcelona.
Ramires - Chelsea
Not only is Ramires a fellow Brazilian to David Luiz, he also played with him at Benfica and joined him at Chelsea. The agile Brazilian has blistering pace and wonderful control on the ball to rip opposition defences apart when on attack but also uses his speed to power down the field and get back to help his team in defence.
Maybe not in the headlines as much as fellow team mates Ramires has shown he can play an important role in the Chelsea team. Definitely one to watch in the coming season, on his day Ramires can really tear a defence to shreds.
Oscar - Chelsea
Oscar is already known for smashing home stunning shots from outside the goalkeepers box and stunning peoples mind with his amazing touches on the ball and powerful attempts at goal.
He has already won Chelsea’s goal of the season award in Chelsea's champions league tie with Juventus. Oscar has both true Brazilian flair as well as class and is a valuable asset to any midfield at any club.
With so much talent at a young age he is surely going to continue to develop into a world star and has already had a cracking first game against Hull City scoring the opening goal of Chelsea's 2013/14 Premier League campaign.
Phillippe Coutinho - Liverpool
Coutinho joined Liverpool in January of 2013 and made an instant impact at Anfield and performed way over what was expected. Having played just half a season Coutinho managed a nomination for the Premier League Young Player of the Year.
With amazing skills and a mind blowing vision Coutinho vitalizes his strengths to create openings for his team mates. Coutinho also posses a lot of pace and is able to beat his opponents mixing dribbles with speed.
At just the age of 21 Coutinho looks to have a bright future and I wouldn't be surprised to see him earning a call up to the Brazilian world cup squad and becoming a dominating player in the Premier League.
Paulinho - Tottenham
Paulinho joined Spurs just recently this summer and is set to be a big star for the london club. The brazilian was singed for a record breaking fee (which was later broken again) and is definitely one to keep your eyes on over the current season.
He is known as a box-to-box midfielder, much like Ramires he possesses powerful running and good movement into the box. He holds the ability to push both himself and his team forward from the midfield area, and is also able to help out with his teams defensive work.
Rafael da Silva - Manchester United
Rafael has been at Manchester Untied for five years now, he has managed 80 appearances over his time at Old Trafford and is increasingly making the red devils's right back position his own. With some great attacking play as well as defensive abilities Rafael shone in the past season under Sir Alex Ferguson and although currently out injured should be looking to continue and improve on his form from last season.
The 23-year-old has been given the number two shirt for the new season which was last worn by club legend Gary Neville. Possibly not yet in the highlights as much as players above, Rafael is definitely a rising talent in the Premier League and is a player to always look out for.
There are other players in the league such as premier league new boy Fernandinho (Manchester City) as well as Anderson (Manchester United) however I feel they are not recognised as much and could improve as players before being mentioned in the names above rather than in the end paragraph here.
We have always known Brazilians to be very tricky and have amazing control over the ball and it is great to see how they are contributing to their teams successes. All of these players are ones to be watched and will be hoping to shine in the new season as well as seasons to come.
